So far Miles has lost only 4 games in 2 years. Miles did not give up coaching after the hurricane and did not let the players quit playing. In fact we only lost to a 6 loss, unranked Tennessee and #10 Georgia. In every other game last season we had some impressive stats - more points on the scoreboard in every game, including a blowout of #17 Miami Florida. We also shut out eventual 1AA national champion Appalachian St 24-0. We also beat #8 Alabama, #12 Florida, #14 Auburn, and #38 Arizona St by an average of 3.5 points. You have to agree, that is better than losing. The SEC may have been down last year, but we still ended up the highest ranked SEC team after Georgia suffered a letdown after winning the game of their season, the SEC championship against LSU. In his second season, Miles has had to travel to some tough venues and has unfortunately lost 1/3 of his games. Still, in our wins LSU is averaging 46.75 points and we have the #1 defense in the nation. When Miles gets this team to perform like that against a ranked opponent he will have proven that LSU deserves its #14 ranking (possibly even higher). There is still a chance to make the conference championship despite losing two SEC games so far, a tribute to Miles' ability to put this team in the position to possibly play for a championship 6 games into the season. Hopefully Nutt will implode and Auburn will lose at least 1 more game. It is even possible that we could win the rest of our games this season. That is not something we could say about Nick Saban in 2004. In fact, I don't think Saban will ever win another game at LSU, and I bet Miles will. Who's the better coach? I'm tired of all the bitchin' about bitchin'. Hopefully this will set the record straight and make all of you who are bitchin' realize that those that are bitchin' about bitchin' make a point. If Miles were the coach at another SEC West school we'd all realize that it is possible to lose to the guy. You might not fear him and you might think that if your team has talent history shows that his team probably won't be able to dominate you. You might even think that when he speaks he is a guy that just plain doesn't speak well. But I think you'd also think, "You know, if we play this guy, our team could possibly lose." I think the best way to judge Miles is to imagine what you'd think if he were the coach at another SEC West school. Keep that in mind next time you post.
